On tap at the brewery. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus pine spicy hop overload. Good showcase for falconers flight. It’s a nice blend. The taste is similar but leans a little heavily towards the astringent side. Not bad, but not great. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Tap at Franklins in Hyattsville. Pours clear orange amber. Weak head. Good lacing. Nose is salty, sweaty, pine. Taste is quite aggressively nutty, pine/spruce, waxy nut skin/shell. Very bitter. Some astringency and thicker body. Long, drying out bitter aftertaste. Biting and sharp. Too astringently bitter.

Draft on 11/09/12. Showed up at the table a hazy copper with a thick beige head. The pungent aroma featured lots of resiny pine, grapefruits, zesty citrus rinds, and plenty of caramel in the background. Went down medium-bodied and just a tad sticky. The taste started with a fair amount of caramel. A biscuity presence followed. Grapefruits and zesty citrus rinds finished things off. There was a fair amount of alcohol warmth throughout. Great stuff. This also seemed more like an I2PA to me as well. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Draft. Hazy dark amber body, small off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some orange, mango. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some mango/orange. Resiny medium-full body that lets the alcohol bleed through, low carbonation, some stickiness. With the stickiness and noticeable alcohol, I’d consider this more of an IIPA.
